Data description (abstract)

This project follows a two year study funded by the New Dynamics of Ageing Programme, entitled Detecting and preventing elder financial abuse: decision making by professionals in health, social care and banking The aim is to maximise the impact of the findings via the development of web-based decision making tools that key professional groups can access to enhance their ability to detect and respond to financial abuse. Using the findings of the previous research, two on-line decision aids will be developed: one for health and social care professionals and one for finance professionals. Following approval from Brunel University Research Ethics Committee, a randomised control trial will be conducted to measure the effectiveness of the decision aid design, by identifying if novices who receive the training are able to make decisions more like experienced professionals. Educational resources will be hosted on a dedicated research website.These will include podcasts of professionals giving their perspective on case examples of financial abuse and discussing the challenges of decision making in this field. In addition seminar training activities will be designed so that the findings can be used to inform small group training.These resources will be evaluated to ensure suitability for practice education.
